In recent years, convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are leading the way in many computer vision tasks, such as image classification, object detection, and face recognition. In order to produce more refined semantic image segmentation, we survey the powerful CNNs and novel elaborate layers, structures and strategies, especially including those that have achieved the state-of-the-art results on the Pascal VOC 2012 semantic segmentation challenge. Moreover, we discuss their different working

Finally, combining some popular underlying referential methods in homologous problems, we propose several possible directions and approaches to incorporate existing effective methods as components to enhance CNNs for the segmentation of specific semantic objects.
